This (the reason there is confusion about the contrasting character of God) is because the current population at large has missed the concept of
balance in paradoxes that exist and are explained by many scriptures, but primarily the Judeo-Christian theology. It is generally easy to explain,
but I have found it more than difficult to clarify to people when they are so wrapped up in the current, terrible doctrines of our age.
Gods have expressed themselves in a two-fold way. At our current point in history, the J-C theology understands those to be Comfort (aka the Holy
Spirit) which proceeds from the Father, and Christ (the Anointed) which proceeds from the Father. More specifically, Comfort proceeded from Christ
which proceeded from the Spirit of the Lord, which was expressed alongside the Word of the Lord. Not so coincidentally, it was the Word which was
being expressed directly in Christ. So then, the primary and first expressions of the Creators in this world were Order/Charity. In the times of
old, they were known as the Spirit of God (mentioned above), the Word of God (mentioned above), and there are other names as well. One more specific
pairing, commonly used by the Jews for being or not being under God, is Counsel and Understanding.
Deu 32:28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
Job 12:13 With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
Pro 8:14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
Pro 20:5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.
So then, the paradox of balancing Order (justice, peace, design, etc) with Charity (giving, compassion, freedom, etc) is completed and perfected in
what we understand to be "The Father," or Elohim. They are the fullness of existence, or also known as YHWH, etc.
If Elohim truly is the Fullness of Existence, the concept of Void is, in and of itself, nonsensical. While it is nonsensical, it is the paradox
created and entered into by the Creators. So, for those who ask, "Can God create a rock He cannot lift?" The answer is both yes and no.
Everything created Nothing in order to even exist in that. A paradox answered by a paradox and the best example is the contradiction of our own world
and our own lives. Mankind is capable of seeing the Order of the stars and elements, but lacks Charity and have become Pride. Mankind is capable of
being Charitable through tolerance and non-violent action, but lacks Order and has become Chaos.
Digressing, life grew up from the Void by the breath of the Creator. This is what we understand to be the universal Soul of life (Spirit through the
Void). Also, life came down from above. This is what we understand to be the Spirit (Spirit from the Fullness). All have the same Soul, but not all
have the same Spirit. More so, as our Flesh (Flesh from below) is all one which came from the Void, Christ (Flesh from above) came down from above
and is One with those who are likewise given His Spirit.
Whether seen, or unseen, from the Void, or from the Fullness, the Creators have created, entered and mastered all things and this is exemplified in
those (the Elect) who They are unified with in Faith and therefore eternity and in those (the carnal man) who They simply use as a "frame" to
display the arts of OrderCharity.
Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly. Joshua answered them, I told
you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My
sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My
Father's hand. I and My Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Joshua answered them, Many good works I have shown you from
My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me? The Jews answered Him, saying, For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and
because You, being a Man, make Yourself God. Joshua answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods? If He called them gods, to
whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, You are
blaspheming, because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me,
believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.
I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and
I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they
may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and
have loved them as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which
You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and
these have known that You sent Me. And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them,
and I in them.
